It’s finally 2015!  The ball has dropped, the champagne has been drunk, the s’mores have been eaten.  But however you celebrate the new year, the festivities have ended, hangovers have been nursed, and it’s time to get down to the business of the new year.  As such, I’m resetting the Page of Awesome and setting new creativity goals for myself in 2015.
400 Blog Posts:
This year I will be continuing to blog my serial Drabble story “The City: A Story in 140 Characters.”  When that finishes, I’d like to begin a new story with a similar premise.  In addition, I’ll be continuing to post “Hugh Likes…” entries throughout the year, updating my status with appearances, announcements, reflections on writing, and more!  I’ll also be unveiling a brand new article series in the near future!
50 Podcast Episodes:
I haven’t always been the most regular when it comes to updating The Way of the Buffalo, but with a new year and a new season launching this month, I am back on the bandwagon.  The podcast’s new schedule will look something like this:
One audio fiction episode, one interview episode, and one special episode, which could be anything.  These will be panel discussions, audio from conventions, bits of my own writing, and more!  We’ll also be presenting one episode The Dark Wife in the feed per month until it’s finished.  There are a few more things on the horizon, but it’s a bit too early to unveil them yet.
5 Self-Published eBook Launches:
My primary goal for this year is to increase my editing.  I have plenty of novellas and longer-form projects that just need a few coats of polish and cover art.  At the very least, I’d like to get these into your digital hands this year:
The Freelance Hunters:  The Shadow Over Ironwood
The Freelance Hunters:  Bingo’s Charm and other Tales
The City:  A Story in 140 Characters ebook edition
Fabulous Powers Vol. 1:  Where There’s Smoke…
Scum and Villainy (Working Title)
Most of this content is working its way through the editing process.  There will be more details as they get finished up.
50 Traditional Short Fiction Submissions
While I will be working on a lot of self-published work this year, I still want to keep submitting to magazines and anthologies.  While I’m not singularly focused on earning my SFWA qualifications this year, completing short stories and sending them out is good practice for a variety of writer’s skills, the most important of which are meeting deadlines and dealing with rejection.
So that’s what I’ll be working on this year.  What are your plans and goals for 2015.  Leave a comment below, or say hello on Twitter and Facebook!
